A lotta chocolate
One year, everyone got chocolates for Christmas. I gave some people other presents, but they also got chocolates. That’s because I was in Macy’s and they had gift boxes of chocolates with small ornaments attached as decorations. I don’t remember all the other ornaments but some of the candy boxes had penguin ornaments on them in different sizes, depending on the size of the box. I even gave myself three boxes of chocolates so I could keep one penguin of each size for my tree. A year later, I found one of the smallest penguins that someone (probably one of my nieces) had left behind and I added it to the collection too. That’s why there are two tiny ones and why the catalogue numbers are far apart. The chocolate was good, by the way.
